My (Handmade) Dog 'n' Cat Quilt !
I was rooting through a closet the other day and ran across this quilt, and realized I had never posted pictures of it before. I made it a few years ago, and it is one of my favorites. A menagerie of pups and kitties (two of my favorite things!) -- and sooooo whimsical and cute! (BTW, that bumpy *LUMP* under the upper right hand corner is my own real kitty, Boo, playing hide 'n' seek!)
This quilt was SO much fun to make. Using "scrips 'n' scraps" of some of my favorite fabrics, and a piecing method called "paper piecing" or "foundation piecing", it's a little "different" than most of the other quilts I have made.
And OH -- no two blocks are the same, and all the critters have little round black beads sewn on for eyes, and the dogs have real button noses!
So, wouldya' like to "meet" some of the individual "kids" on the block?! (LOL, no PUN intended!!!)
Well, lookie there, even the real fur-kid approves! Actually he and Boo have been trying DESPERATELY to CHEW OFF all the button noses!!! (GAH! BAD Raggies!!!!) ;o)

And PS... I have gotten a lot of requests for the book that this pattern is from. Please see "Comments" below for all info. Also, feel free to message me through the "contact" link on the blog's home page with any questions not answered there. ENJOY!
